The statement of the headline belongs to the former president of Ecuador. Dr. Osvaldo Hurtado Larrea, who just presented his new book. “Dictatorships of the XXI century The Ecuadorian Case,” which is not a book about Rafael Correa, “despite being the main actor, is a book about life, passion and death of the Ecuadorian democracy,” as he explains it.
In an interview with El Comercio newspaper, the former president confirmed that his last work is an academic manuscript and gives the merit to the editor for publishing it during the electoral campaign season. He explains, “democracy can not be a society of subjects, that by fear or submission remains quiet,” although for saying what he says does not rules out that “Correa could cause me trial or sentence… because when there’s a dictatorship the reason is less important.”
Finally he qualified as something natural the popular boredom regarding the governments and politicians after 20 years of crisis in the country, Osvaldo Hurtado said, “beware, the new Ecuador did not began with Correa, but with the dollarization and the high crude prices.”
